Dr.Naem is a cosmetic dentist in Pomona, NY who works with Invisalign. Invisalign is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is able to to straighten teeth without using metal bars or brackets. Instead, a series of clear, plastic aligners is used to gradually shift your teeth into the correct positioning. With Invisalign there is no need for tightening brackets or rubber bands. All you need to do is replace your aligner trays every two weeks with a new set until your treatment is complete. Because Invisalign uses only plastic parts, patients do not experience any of the soreness of pain that can result with metal bars and brackets.

To determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign, you will need to consult with a cosmetic dentist. Pomona residents can contact Dr. Naem. Once it has been determined that you are eligible for the treatment, we will take X-rays and make impressions of your teeth so that we can carefully plot the movement of your teeth. We will use them to create a custom set of aligner trays, designed specifically for your teeth. You will need to change these trays approximately every two weeks. This way, your teeth are gradually and strategically moved into their correct position. Every six to eight weeks we recommend coming in for a check-up so that we can record and monitor your progress.
Invisalign trays are to be worn all day and night and should only be removed for eating and brushing. The length of the treatment varies depending on several factors, but typically lasts about a year.
